Spofec is an aftermarket specialist part of the Novitec tuning group, and has been a specialist of Rolls-Royce for some time now – even the name being derived from the Spirit Of Ecstasy hood ornament.
The elegant statue that’s the pride and joy of every owner of Rolls-Royce vehicles around the world does come up a little unfazed to what happens after it exits the Goodwood premises. That’s because the tuner has a new tuning project on its hands that involves the luxurious convertible with a graceful name. It’s an evolution of their initial program from last year, and this time around the changes are much more substantial. The cabrio now gains a widebody kit made from carbon fiber, with enlarged wheel arches and a set of huge 22-inch alloys to show off.
Spofec calls this package “Overdose” and we’re not sure we entirely agree – because the modifications actually look quite tasteful and restrained, even though it implies such extensive modifications. The mechanicals have been altered as well – the air suspension upgraded, and because of course having a 6.6-liter biturbo V12 mill is never enough, now there’s 686 hp (505 kW) and a monstrous 723 lb-ft (980 Nm) under the hood, With these credentials, the Dawn jumps to 62 mph (100 kph) in 4.6 seconds or three tenths of a second quicker than a base Dawn, but not to worry, because a mere eight Overdose Dawns will ever be around.
